!!! Warning: Pictures overload !!!

Ahhhh, back to the swing of things.

I don’t know about you, but I am feeling SO refreshed! Anyone else?

I love Labor Day weekend because every time I come back, I am ready to hit the ground running! I think a lot of it is being out of the hospitality industry (aka wtf is a weekend?!) because ever since 2013, we’ve made sure to max and relax all cool as the seasons change.

I’ve mentioned it over & over & over but I’ve been in a strange rut. To be completely blunt, it lasted for months – I just try to keep it a positive place here.

For the first time in months, I finally feel that I am getting out of it and back into the swing of things. I’ll do a more personal post on this, but I finally feel refreshed & I think Jenner REAAAALLLLY helped.

Erik & I are obsessed with Jenner, California.

Seriously, obsessed.

Jenner is off the grid in all the best ways & surrounded by so much beauty.

I told y’all about Jenner here but let’s talk more!

We stayed at Timber Cove Resort (fka Timber Cove Inn). It is our favourite place on the Sonoma Coast & so very special.

Every time we go to Jenner, we stay at Timber Cove.

It recently underwent some renovations during the majority of 2016.

We were a tad nervous when we made our reservations since it was our first time to return since the renovation…& very happily surprised! All the charm remained, with a nice modern touch.

They did a phenomenal job in keeping the character to the resort, but modernizing the atmosphere.

The aesthetic of the resort is very much bohemian, 1960’s California – wayyyyy up my alley.

They also turned the outside welcome area into a living room with plenty of activities like ping pong and pool. However, the chess set I raved about last time was no longer there but have no fear! Erik has plenty of chess apps on his phone 😉

One thing that truly makes me happy is being as close as possible to the ocean.

I posted an instagram in bed while there, and as you could see, our bed looked right out to the ocean. It was seriously dreamy.

Equipped with a Nest system, the room regulated temperature. As things got too cold, it would set off the fire place & vice versa if things got too hot. My favourite way, though, is to keep the door open so you get the ocean breeze & waves lullabying you to sleep.

The rooms were all set with Crosley record players, marble (super chic) bathrooms, and a local wetbar stocked with Sonoma Coast wines & beers.

They have rooms that look out to the forest and coves or the ocean. We obviously opted for the ocean view.

Jenner is home to my absolute favourite sunset though you know that if you follow my snaps & insta stories. To be fair, the pictures never do it justice.

In fact, I am having major withdrawals from it – that view is one that gives me instant peace & zen.

We spent most of our time at the resort – including our meals.

They redid the restaurant, but also added a bar / lounge menu that was right up mine & Erik’s alley. The burger was bombbbbbb with a mix of beef  & chorizo for extra flavour!

Cafe Aquatica - the BEST place for fresh, organic, local cuisine. Get the Eggs til Noon - TRUST ME!!!

On Sunday, we head over to our favourite: Cafe Aquatica for our favourite poached egg sandwich.  After b-fast, we headed across the street to Jenner Inn & Fishstock

Jenner Inn across the street has a great bar, FANTASTIC restaurant, and most importantly – a cutie seal logo.

I bought a hat & sweatshirt (I thought it was very Brandy Melville-esque)!

Okay, so right down the road (behind the Jenner C-Store) hosted a really fun local festival called Fish Stock.

Think live music, bbq seafood, grilled oysters, beer / wine, and a local live auction. Erik & I LOVED it and the local bands were SO, so so good!

We also headed back to another favourite: Fort Ross Vineyards for some wine tasting which took up the majority of our Saturday (something about it just sucks the hours away).

OH & this is crazy, but when we got back to the hotel there was a FOREST FIRE a few coves down from us. Right at sunset, the sky got smokier & smokier! Luckily, it did not spread too far & it got taken care ASAP.

For the most part though, we stayed local to the hotel. The hiking trails are endless, the views are addictive, and it was off the grid enough (yeah there was wifi, but still) to disconnect & fully recharge.

For those in California, Jenner is a must for a weekend getaway – seriously, I have never felt so refreshed and I just FEEL so good and inspired.

  • another Sunday, another puzzle 🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️ #momentswithsunday
  • Did anyone else have a full week of Mondays or was it just me?! Either way, I’m cheersing HARD to the weekend 🔆  #tgiff
  • After trying all of the natural @skylar fragrances, I settled with CAPRI - sparkling, sweet citrus ✨🏝🍋🌟 it was a scent that made me instantly happy and transported me to the Mediterranean, beachside, in a belted swimsuit, cat eye sunnies, & a huge hat with a limoncello spritz in hand. 🥂 Instant good vibes and I love how it fades to an irresistibly sweet finish on me. I’ve been layering it with Isle from the sampler pack below and some coconut-vanilla body lotions! I love that they are non-toxic, cruelty fre, & hypoallergenic. Use the code SCENTS10 for 10% off {& be sure to get the sampler pack so you can try them all - the cost of the $20 pack will be applied to the full size}! 🍋 🌟 #ad #skylarbody #ambskyfull #ambcollab #madeinla
  • my lil urban jungle cat 💖 Last night, @erikschuchard brought home a TON of plants: we now have succulents galore, some small trees, cacti, ferns, & my fave: palms & lots of them 🌴 now I have to find some chic planters and have no idea where to begin. Any ideas?! #blackcatsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #cornerofmyhome
  • Tennis, anyone? 🎾 skipped the gym today and hit the tennis courts with @erikschuchard instead! ✨ #lovelove #mysf #slsfit
  • Good scents come naturally and I’m loving @skylar lately. 🍃 It’s a non-toxic, hand crafted perfume from LA. I love that they are all natural and cruelty free not to mention hypoallergenic & both paraben / phthalate free.
🌟
Let’s talk the scents - can you guess which full sized one I chose?:
CAPRI: sparkly citrus with notes of musk, dewy rose, & neroli
ARROW: seductive night jasmine with warm vanilla, & patchouli
CORAL: flirty & fruity with grapefruit with apple blossom
ISLE: clean and refreshing with bergamot, sandalwood, & cardamom
MEADOW: elegant and feminine with tuberose & orange blossom.
🌟
they are so pretty on their own but they layer very well together. I personally am loving mixing Arrow with Meadow and Capri with Isle.
🌟
What’s really rad is that you can try all of their 5 scents in the comfort of your home before you commit to a full size! This set is $20 but when you decide which one you want, that $20 goes into the full sized perfume. ~*but wait there’s more*~ you can use the promo code SCENTS10 for a 10% discount!
🌟
OK SO- which are you?: spicy, fruity, clean, floral, or sparkly?! ✨
